From Autumn Branscome Photography, “There’s nothing as sweet as a newborn baby and many mom’s are so flustered with having a new baby and going through labor that they never think to capture those first 48 hours. By the time they have newborn photographs a few days later the baby has already changed… it seems impossible but those first few days babies change daily. Owen’s momma understood how important those moments are and booked me for a Fresh48 session to capture all the newness in the hospital.”

So I will admit, the idea of a birth story session is something I have long admired, but personally, been nervous about. I mean who knows how you’re going to be, feel and…look at a moment like that.
But I knew that I would forever regret it if I didn’t have the images to capture the magic. So on November 13th, when we were told it was time to meet the boys, our first call after moms and dads, was to Emily. And capture the magic she did. Em – we are forever grateful!

From Jealous Melon Photography, “I had the privilege of capturing the beautiful moment when little Avery made her big appearance on May 30, 2014 weighing in at 7lbs, 15oz and 20.5 inches long. I returned a few weeks later to photograph her lifestyle newborn session. During this session I was able to capture that amazing bond between Avery, mom, dad, and big brother Hudson.”

From Zemya Photography, “On Friday night, just as my husband and I came home from a date night, I got a message from C. They were heading into Labor and Delivery because she thought her water had broken. I packed my gear and headed out. Even at the risk this might not be THE day, it was at least a good practice run for me. The doctors didn’t see what they were looking for and we were sent home. I left my bag by the door that night, because her story was TOO similar to my own delivery of our youngest for this not to be IT. I got some great sleep that night, and as I was getting ready to head to the South Bay to spend some time with friends, I received a second text — C was on her way back to the hospital. Thus so was I. Today really was THE day. Since C was having a c-section, we were waiting on a confirmation of surgery time. We waited, joking around and generally killing time on Facebook. Although C was contracting, luckily her only discomfort came from the IV tethered to her arm, and the little boy that was still doing flips in her belly. Since I wasn’t allowed in the operating room, dad-to-be, D took the photographer responsibility while in surgery. Photographing a birth is such an indescribable experience. There are unanticipated moments that bear so much emotion. I dare any person that describes themselves as staunch to witness and not feel their heart swell up and release through tears. When C and D told her family their son’s name for the very first time, and the meaning behind it: that was powerful. It’s a moment I won’t forget. I am very grateful to have been asked to be here for C and D as they welcomed their newest little guy to our world.”

Meghan Harrison of M. Rose Photography shares an incredible twin birth story session. From Meghan, “I already knew I was in love with shooting births from my first experience, but then to have my next birth session be twins? It was a dream! I was SO excited. I got there in plenty of time (I thought for sure I was going to miss it!) but once those babies were ready, it all went so fast! Doctors and nurses in position, Mom pushing only a few times before baby girl is out, and then I had 4 minutes to follow her while she got weighed before baby boy made his way out! The whole process was absolutely incredible. I was also able to photograph their first baths, getting measured, meeting aunty and grandma and grandpa, and then of course, little Elias getting woken up to meet his baby brother and sister for the first time – it was all so beautiful.” Congratulations Keiry and Ryan!
